Tragedy as SUV kills fruit seller, four-year-old son in Akwa Ibom

Tragedy struck along Ikot Ekpene Road, Uyo, Akwa Ibom State capital, on Wednesday as an SUV killed a roadside fruits seller and her four-year-old son.

According to Vanguard, sources who witnessed the accident on Thursday that the small boy died on the spot, while the mother identified as Nsima Sylvester Etim, was rushed to a hospital where she died.

The yet-to-be-identified driver was said to have skidded off the road and hit the woman and her son.

The car also hit a tricycle parked in front of a welder’s shop.

Some eyewitnesses were even quick to conclude that the driver must have lost control of the vehicle because he was driving at a high speed.

The welder, who simply identified himself as Utibe, said only God saved him from being killed.

He said when he saw the vehicle coming towards his direction at a high speed, he quickly ran out of his shop.

His testimony: “It was God that saved me. I was working on the tricycle when I noticed the Jeep coming at a very high speed to my direction.

“So I ran away from my shop. If I had not runaway I would have been dead by now.”

Utibe, who still appeared in shock over the accident added that “the driver hit the woman and her son.

“The small boy died on the spot and the woman later died in a hospital.”

A brother of the dead woman who could not hide his grief lamented: “that woman is my sister.

“She sells fruits in front here. This is our family compound. The four-year-old son died on the spot, She was rushed to the hospital but she died.”

He, however, disclosed that the Police arrived the scene of the accident immediately and took the driver to the police station.
